Profile I live in a small Dorset village with my husband and 3 sons. I was a teacher for 22 years, during which time I wrote school musicals and stories to tell in school. I am now adapting and expanding these original ideas. I have written `Torn` essentially adult fiction and the first children`s book in the series of `Happy Bottom` tales.

NAPOLEON by Joella Word Count: 315

Another Happy Bottom instalment. Major Payne has to do battle with the cock Napoleon, who now rules Rooster's Folly. Can the cock be tamed? *As I've said, targeting 7-8 year olds (9?). I hope they'll be fun to read, or for younger children to listen to. All comments much appreciated. Regards

ROOSTER`S FOLLY by Joella Word Count: 307

The original version was several pages long and probably more suited to adults. I've changed it completely, and hope it's more suited to children 7 - 8 years old. I'd appreciate comments if anyone's got the time to review this poem. Many thanks.

Happy Bottom by Joella Word Count: 156

This is the prelude to the Happy Bottom sagas. It tells how Major Payne inherited Happy Bottom from his Uncle Derry Ayres. Age group - 7 -8 ? Think Happy Bottom will be suitable for fluent readers, good for practising reading aloud and also fun bedtime stories. If anyone has children of this age, would appreciate your views. Generally, all comments very welcome, of course.
